Cyprus #4 Spur-winged Plovers

One of the birds I had hoped to see in Cyprus was Spur-winged Plover/Lapwing. I found them easily at Paralimni Lake, near the shooting club (note the slightly alarming gunfire on the video clip below).

Also, c20 were around the lakes at Larnaca, including several from the hide overlooking the fresh water reservoirs. I will always think of these birds as 'plovers' though they look clearly like their Lapwing cousins in the field.
